One of my favorite things about summer is catching up with my best friends from home. What better way to do that than with a good old-fashioned brunch with the gals! Bottomless mimosas, pancakes and fresh fruit could not disappoint.

One of my good friends was wearing a cute ensemble and I simply had to take a picture. In these pictures, this Fashionista is styling a black and white striped dress, gray sneakers, a black shoulder bag, a gold statement necklace, gold rings, a black belt and some shades to give her look that summer vibe. I just love it! It’s simple, yet each piece is so well put together that it stands out regardless. Also, one of the best parts of this Fashionista’s look is that it is versatile; she can easily pull off this outfit for a night out with the girls.

Styling a striped dress such as this one is great because it gives you the opportunity to really know which accessories to pair with it. The statement necklace and unique rings from this Fashionista are a key part to the whole look. They show her simplistic yet classy taste and sense of style.

Last but not least is the use of the belt. This Fashionista could have opted to wear the dress without the belt, but she chose to wear it and it is fabulous. Although it may not seem like it, a simple belt like this one can make an entire look more fashionable. Never underestimate the use of a simple belt to add to your look.

One Simple Change: Going out with the girls? Simply switch the sneakers for some strappy sandals and you are good to go.
